Apparel Tech Pack Freelancer in Ward, Colorado

Natalie Waltrip is a freelance tech pack designer in Ward, Colorado, specializing in articulated fit for athletic apparel. If you live in Colorado and you are starting a new clothing line, then you definitely need to know Natalie.

Natalie is an expert in apparel fit, hand pattern making and tech packs, and she is passionate about it. She is highly experienced in managing the technical design path from concept hand-off to approved production samples and all necessary steps in between, including costing.

Having tech packs is the key to working with factories overseas (and domestically too). Natalie can save you a lot of time and money in the long run. I work with factories in Vietnam and see people wasting time and money because they come to Vietnam without tech packs and don't have their designs completed.
